leathererotics

Site layout : Easy to navigate, products categorised. Special sections to show new items and special offers. Leatherotics are on ebay too for people who like shopping that way.
Items available : Leather specialist – variety of leather clothing – skirts, dresses, catsuits and also bondage items such as hoods, sleepsacks, straight jackets and arm binders.
Pricing : Very reasonable for the quality of leather. This girl has used them several times over the years.
Ordering : Usually this girl has used their buy it now or auctions on ebay, but on the website it is a shopping cart system and payments methods include paypal.
Communication : Used to be better.  This girl has done all her purchases through ebay, but as well as the generic ebay communications they used to  send out emails to confirm dispatches. On a recent purchase this girl found communication much poorer than it has been in the past, but this is just personal experience.
Postage  : For what this girl has purchased in the past costs have been reasonable, items well packaged and prompt mostly. Many years ago this girl had an order that she had to chase a few times before receiving but out of about half a dozen purchases only one had any delay and that was many years ago. So, still a thumbs up on this. In fact looking back through the correspondence with them she got free postage on the next thing she bought to compensate for the delays on the item she had an issue with.

What this girl bought : several things – two hoods plus a further one for an ex play partner, two neck corsets, two corsets, sleep sack.

This girl has been a repeat customer of Leatherotics just really because the leather is so soft and well unsure if this is the right word but ‘buttery’ – it just feels really nice and soft and the items she has bought all help towards her very guilty pleasure of the love of sensory deprivation.

This girl has had the sleepsack of theirs about six years and it’s still as good as new – this picture is from a very early experience of electrics and full bondage at Grimly’s! This girl still gets to use the sleep sack relatively regularly and its still absolutely as good as new :)

This next picture shows the first hood this girl bought from there. This one has a detachable blindfold and gag piece. She bought the same hood for an ex sub of hers and he loved it too! When this girl bought this hood it was really the first she had ever bought for herself so it was quite an exciting purchase! The corset is also leathererotics – but with a few Grimly modifications! The catsuit underneath is from another ebay seller (can’t remember which) and is pu leather not real, but all together this girl was completely spaced out in this ensemble! This girl would actually really like to get one of the leatherotics catsuits made to measure its just a matter of saving up – especially since Grimly has revealed he has a Mord Sith fantasy!

This next picture also shows the same corset modified into a pony harness by Grimly with bells on :) Perhaps its excessive to post another picture of the corset, however this is one of this girl’s favourite kink photos ever – taken with the lovely cutie! The head harness and mitts she is wearing are both Grimly creations. Amazingly the outfit cutie is wearing was all made from scratch by Cutie – this girl has never seen anything else quite like it!
corset Well, this is a repeat of a recent picture showing the neck corset. It’s not the most extreme one this girl owns – but they do several different ones. The good thing about this one is the gag panel is removable so it makes it a little more versatile!

The last picture shows one of this girl’s favourite hoods. This one only has nose holes and nothing else – so , essentially an immediate ticket into subspace. It’s pictured with the sleep sack too, complete leather bondage ;)

Anyway, hopefully the amount of different things this girl has bought there will demonstrate its worth a look. The quality is well worth the £ in this girl’s opinion and has led to countless hours of bondage fun! They have some new hoods since this girl last looked so perhaps she’ll invest in another some time in the near future – their bolero straight jacket also looks pretty nice!

If you have had experience of this site or their products and want to leave a comment (good or bad – provided it can be supported) please do so .

Hope you have enjoyed this review and supporting pictures – stay tuned for next week :) (and well hopefully some more kink in-between!)

  1. I’ve also bought a number of items from Leatherotics including the first hood you mentioned, an arm-binder, a neck corset, 3 corsets (1 leather and 2 satin) and a “made to measure” corset dress. All the items were lovely quality as you described and my only complaint was that the corset dress was too big for my girl in some places, despite Leatherotics being provided with the correct measurements. After a number of phone calls they provided a partial refund which I used to have the dress altered. All in all, I’ve been delighted with Leatherotics and would happily use them again.

  2. Jane, Duncan – thanks for your feedback. This is the main reason why I started this series so whilst i’m giving my opinion others can note theirs as well and it give it more value to anyone who might read it that is thinking about spending hard earned cash on kink :)

  3. Nice webshop you found there! I especially like their single gloves and leather dildo mask. The hoods look good too, but I’m always a bit afraid to wear a leather or latex hood… :$ Thanks for the article! -xx- madelon

  4. i was afraid of hoods to begin with, but i love them now! i suppose its just finding one you are comfortable with trying and then experimenting with it to see if you can get over the fear that is if you want to explore that :)

  5. I’ve got one of their straitjackets which is lovely. Get to put it to some use this weekend!

    I think I’ll have to order one of the sleepsacks soon though :D

  6. Just wondering if there sleep sack has internal sleeves as this is something i have wanted for quite some time. I have seen their bits on ebay for a long time but always thought to stay away as ebay tends to be a bad place to spend a lot of money of big buys. ie Sleep sack and strait-jackets.

    Your review has been amazingly helpful and would love to say thank you for writing it. Would never of considered them if I had not stumbled across your web site and reviews :)

  7. our one has 2 sets of loops on each side that the arms can go through, not sleeves as such, but it wouldn’t be difficult to modify if that is what you wanted. i don’t think there’s anything wrong with spending big money on ebay, well most we have spent there is on a bath LOL the thing though is if doing so to check a sellers ratings and feedbacks a lot of sellers on ebay now are actually companies that sell stuff themselves through other websites/actual shops.

  8. After you positive review above I bought a pair of “Mens Natural Leather binder SHORTS Knickers spiky tight “. Thanks. They are perfect, and the quality, price and service were great.

  9. Front view for you at my FetLife page. My arms aren’t long enough to take a rear-end view! Sorry! :-))
